Virtual Meeting Etiquette

Making Club Conference Calls Fun for All


We all want to hear you, not your background.

If you don’t have headphones with a mic that allow everyone to hear just you, practice muting when you don’t have anything to say.  This will help everyone hear better!

Guidelines & Agenda

All 4-H Meetings should have a plan.

Just like at 4-H Club Meetings, we want an agenda or plan for what we are going to talk about.  That could mean that you’ve scheduled time for checking in and hearing how everyone is doing with their project.  Keeping the group focused helps us use our time well.


Everyone should have something to share.

It’s easy to get distracted, so help everyone keep calls short but frequent.  Try your best to stay engaged and share your thoughts and ideas.  Don’t be an “air-hog” and encourage others that you haven’t heard from to speak too.

Repeat & Summarize

Distractions happen.

If you’ve shared about something that’s really cool, res-state briefly what you’ve shared so anyone fighting distractions (like funny dogs or younger siblings) doesn’t miss out.
